Jake had his BDay Friday and is now 6 years old! Man time flies. It seems like yesterday he was my big chunkers baby with the biggest, fattest, cutest, roly poly legs ever!

Now he is getting so dang big and is still the cuddly boy who can't stand two minutes without giving someone a big squeeze!

Jake, I loves you and am glad your my kiddo!

A Day In The Life

So on the way home from walking her bros to school girlie girl had to hit the sprinklers!

After she was thoroughly soaked to the bone she of course had to change into proper princess attire to watch her toons. Go you girlie!

The flu season is upon us.  Last week we all got it and i got it again this week too.  Bummer.  Not only is flu season upon us but so is birthday season for this household.  As I am getting my strength back I have realized I have approximately 2 days to get my tornado of a house in order for Jake's BDay party Saturday.

He is soooo excited!  I just hope I can get it all done in time (cross my fingers). I am sure it will all get done, but what would life be without stressing out about it unnessisarily right?!

Kreg Jig

The Kreg Jig is definately on my with list.

 It is for pocket holes.  I want one really bad.  I love building things, and for those of you who may not know, pocket holes are bit more hidden and out of the way so that you cannot see the screws that hold pieces in place.  It is great for screwing corners together at an angle so that the screw doesn't go wonky and go through the other side.

I learned about this item on Anna White's blog. Here is a video about them. (click on Here).

Cast Iron Fryer

James' parents have one of these and I thought it was so cool I had to get one!  I have now had mine for a couple of years now and I love it!  I use it for chips, onion rings, fish, chicken, anything that needs frying gets dunked in this bad boy!  I also love that it has a lid that also doubles as a frying pan.  This fryer has definately been worth the buy.  I use it all the time.

I Want to Ride My Bicycle

So the kiddos have been on fall break so we have been working on their bike riding skills. Mr Ethan got the job done!

He is now bike riding pro! Woo hoo!!!

The Simpson's

Okay, I was in my room sitting on the floor and Eva was in there watching Sesame Street when she walks up to the T.V. leans in and says, "I like you T.V.".

Ear Phones

Okay. . . for those of you who don't already know I am a hugemongous Pinterest addict! I found somone on Pinterest who makes wraps for earbuds and I just knew that I could hack it.

When tying a knot you tie it twice to knot the knot. With the earbuds you tie it once (as pictured above) and then flip it to tie the yarn again flipping each time after it has been tied. You do need to leave a long tail when you first begin so that you can continue tying.

It was very time consuming but definitely worth the effort. They don't get tangled up anymore and it keeps the cords safe from little hands!
